This past holiday season, WISH for OUR HEROES (W4OH) had the pleasure to donate a hydrotherapy Sundance® Spa to a wounded veteran. With the help of Sundance® Spas corporate, Desert Oasis Spas and a local electrician with Riteway Electric, we presented a Hyrdotherapy spa to the Kenney family of Grand Junction, Colo.
Mr. Kenney joined the Army/infantry in August 2008 at 41 years old. Deployed to Afghanistan in February 2010 and wounded in October 2010, he was attached to a scout platoon and had back, hip, and shoulder blown out by an RPG Blast. He received a purple heart and was medically retired as a result of his injuries in December 2014. He had shoulder surgery, a back fusion, and a computerized electronic unit surgically installed in his back for pain relief. He suffers from chronic pain due to the injuries and scar tissue build up from the surgeries. The hydrotherapy spa relaxes his muscles and takes pressure off his nerve centers. It also helps calm him down, which helps with his PTSD.
Right now, Mr. Kenney is working to get back to his previous profession as a fly fishing guide and outfitter. He works with Welcome Home Montrose and Project Healing Waters in Colorado to give back to the veteran community now that his mobility has improved and pain has diminished.
W4OH is happy to help this hero and provide this military family with a hydrotherapy spa as part of the nationwide Hot Tubs for Heroes program, which provides hydrotherapy spas to wounded and injured veterans across the country, thanks to Sundance® Spas and its local dealers.
Drew Meng, President, North America Spa, states: “As an organization, we believe that the benefits of hydrotherapy are especially true for those who have gone through the rigors of serving in the military. In addition to helping to bring generations of families together after extended leaves of absence, the benefits of hydrotherapy for stress, recuperation and more can be as close as their backyard with a Sundance® spa; and with WISH for OUR HEROES, Sundance® Spas can help to make that happen.”
